- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Rates: $120 – 50 minute session I am considered an out of network provider. What that means is that I don’t bill insurance, but can provide you with a superbill if you want to submit it to your insurance for reimbursement. Submitting a superbill is not a guarantee for reimbursement, and will need to be accompanied by a diagnosis. If this is something you want to pursue, we can discuss this and make a plan. It is important to understand your mental health benefits before starting therapy if you want to use insurance. Often times, mental health services are not covered until the deductible is reached. With such high deductibles these days, this is important to understand. Another thing to consider is that therapy won’t be covered by insurance until you meet the criteria for a mental health diagnosis. While many times this might be the case, there are times when a client does not formally meet a diagnosis, but that does not mean that he or she doesn’t need help and support in the form of psychotherapy. There are some benefits of paying out-of-pocket for therapy: You get to decide which therapist you want to work with, regardless of which therapists accept your insurance. Your treatment isn’t dictated by a case manager at the insurance company who is deciding how many sessions they will allocate. There are no formal records of mental health diagnosis. Today, many people have Health Savings Accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts that use pre-tax dollars to pay for services, including mental health services. The ultimate goal is to find a therapist who you feel comfortable working with, who inspires you to commit to and value the process of therapy, and to be able to experience first hand the benefits of being in therapy!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start with doing a general assessment to see where someone is coming from. The first goal is to find ways we can find immediate relief from the symptoms, and then we will explore any underlying issues.
